Pacific Callas wonders if we will be interested in a Calla Lily Co-op this year, they say they have over 70 different colors available. Prices usually range from about $2.50 to $8 depending on the color.

You can see what they have here: http://www.callalilyshop.pacificcallas.com/allvarieties.htm

There may be other spring bulbs available through them too.

Please make a comment here if you are interested and if enough people are I'll set it up.

I have never grown Calla Lilies so yes, I would be interested in trying a few. I'm in zone 4, so I am sure that I would have to dig them up and store them inside over winter.

You probably would have to dig them Jeanne (unless you want to buy new ones next year). They are so easy to grow and are stunning flowers, always get great comments in the garden.

Callas are easy to dig up and store because they keep their foliage until fall. I like that you don't have to guess where the bulbs are. I just dry mine thoroughly, then put them in a paper bag and put them in the basement. Some people do store them in pots or add dry peat moss to the storage.

I don't mind digging them up. I did up my Cannas, Dahlias, and Grads every fall. I will go to your website and decide which ones I would like to get. I am so excited to be adding Calla Lilies. Thanks, Jeanne

I'm just judging interest for now, I did ask them this morning how many people or bulbs we need to order or if there is a minimum amount of money. Hopefully will hear back by tomorrow.

But you can go and get a wish list ready!

Those were Flame Callas. Ones I had to buy, as the 200 bulbs we planted for flowers started blooming the week AFTER my niece's wedding. Lesson learned! Rolling on the floor laughing Sighing!

Don't know what I'm doing wrong Confused but I can't find any of these plants on their website. All I find is the Callas.
